Acupuncturist and Burnout Coach
I'm an acupuncturist and burnout coach who focuses on high achievers both in NYC and online
Acupuncturist, burnout expert, author, and podcast host who loves mismatched mugs and dog walks at your service.|
All of my work boils down to my desire to help #endburnoutculture. After experiencing 2 bouts of burn out in my own life, while doing a job I loved, I knew it was time to dig deeper under the surface and figure out WTF was going on. (You should know that I consider swearing a love language ;)).
After more than 2 years of research and healing, both on my own and with help ,I found my way through burn out and created such a sense of power in myself, that I created a new word: Bouncebackability.
I have deep faith in YOU and in your body. I have talked to 1000's of patients and clients over the years and I know that you have bouncebackability inside of you and that you can find it by efforting less, and trusting more.
With the same goal in mind of ending burnout culture, I created and produce FRIED. The Burnout Podcast. Every week, you get the inside story of someone's burnout and how they got out of it. FRIED's job is to allow you to feel seen, heard, and validated so that you too can make the decision to heal your burnout.
As a person, I straddle the practical and spiritual worlds and believe in using them both well to help get you to your goals. My practical side has served me well while working abroad (Warsaw, Poland and Prague, Czech Republic). Keeping my feet on the ground allowed me to build two practices that I will cherish forever.
My spiritual side allowed me to choose to be guided, to heed the callings and pay attention to the signs and symbols being placed before me. It also allows me to attract and be present for exactly those people who need my help.
I have long term relationships with so many of my previous patients and clients because of these natural connections that happen during our work.
At home, I love to laugh with my husband and find excuses to lay on the floor with our dog, Flora.
I never imagined being anything other than an MD - until I started pre-med at Boston University. I've always know that I'd be involved in medicine in some way, so I don't remember it being an inspiration more than it was a deep knowing.
I had the great fortune of having access to Daoist scholar, Livia Kohn, during my undergraduate program and she introduced me to Chinese Medicine and I never looked back.
The combination of macro and microcosms, the balance of the 5 elements, the interconnection of everything in your life from relationship to diet to physical health made SO MUCH sense to me and I'm so glad that Chinese medicine is my lens for viewing health (and the world).
My clients often thank me post first visit for actually truly listening to them and providing the lines that connect the dots. By helping your symptoms make more sense in the context of your life, you are both validated and empowered to take action. I love a first visit :)
... don't worry, it's not my first time ;) Just to get a laugh out of you and smooth the energy in the room. I like you to know that acupuncture is not mumbo jumbo - during MRI's and CT scans, they can watch your brain, muscles, and organs respond to needling. There are physical changes that happen and they are so cool.
